Can jetbikes stop in cover normally or do they need to take a dangerous terrain test? Are the rules the same with the other hover units like raiders and venoms?

jetbikes take dangerous terrain tests if they stop in terrain. Skilled Rider allows them to ignore dangerous terrain tests.

Skimmers also take dangerous terrain tests if they stop in terrain

what elder jet bikes can deep strike?

I read in the rule book that jet bikes (eldar) can move 2d6 even if they arrived by deep strike. I don't see anything saying they can do that.

I am unaware of any jetbikes that can deepstrike under the current rules except using Planetstrike rules.

The only jetbikes that can deepstrike that I know of are Screemers of Tzeentch but they don't have the 2d6 move.

+1 to the Dangerous terrain: My friend once used a squad of 3 Reavers against my 'Nids; determined to bladevane my Genestealers, he flew across them to a ruin...and lost 2 of them! Next turn, he lost the last one whilst trying to take off! He didn't even get any Genestealers!

Well that was played wrong, for starters jet bikes ignore terrain they fly over and only have to test for dangerous terrain if they start or end their move in dangerous terrain. Reavers also have skilled rider which means they auto-pass dangerous terrain tests (last edition they got to re-roll dangerous terrain tests instead).

Red Card: Building sent off for illegal tackle. Smile

I assure you, it was a spectacular fail! It was last year, during 5th: he flew over my Genies, landed on a ruin, 2 bikes failed both their first dangerous landing rolls AND their re-rolls...his next turn the remaining Reaver failed both take offs!

It goes down in our group's history as possibly THE worst set of rolls we've seen, beating Edward's legendary Terminator squad, "The Onesies" :-)

Also, if you have the right Leadership trait, you can get skimmers that ignore terrain, or atleast ruins
